Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I’m so glad this is an ongoing series rather than a mini. The art, story, and everything is just too fun. More Iron Snail!

  2. I was really expecting much more innovative covers from the great Brian Bolland, they’ve been a little bland so far. Great series though.

  3. The pace for last issue was really fast. Felt like China had to really get some of the story out of the way for the next issue. Not sure if that’s a good sign or not.

  4. This is the second best ongoing being published at any company right now, right up there with Saga and Batman inc.

  5. This book has an interesting reverse logistic to it,,,while a number of other New 52 series started strong for me then dwindled to the point I no longer cared if I read them. Dial H started off well and showed promise, but with each issue I am more intrigued with the story and loving this series.

  6. I’m really enjoying this book.

  7. The heroes of this comic are a fat guy and an old lady. Sadly, this may be the most innovative idea at DC. This comic is unique, fun, interesting, and surprising. Sometimes I get downright giddy reading it.

  8. I thought this a slower issue than the last. Not that it’s dippin quality, just not much happened in this issue. Maybe it’s just me, but is anyone else having trouble understanding the Abyss? I feel like there’s more to what he’s saying besides the obivious meaning in the fragmented words.

  9. I think Mieville is doing an excellent job building this story – the plotting and pacing. The art really meshes with the story too – placing plot points in art alone – with no textual explanation. Overall reminds me of what I like best about a Grant Morrison story – trusting the reader to pay attention and figure out whats going on. Subtle, moody, full of ideas. If you enjoy China Mieville’ novels, you’ll probably like this comic. Great book.

  10. I feel like I need to start back from the beginning and I feel like there are many more layers of this story that I haven’t begun to understand. I think it’s that feeling that is so awesome. It’s not straightforward and frankly sometimes I wonder what the hell is going on, but there is also something really special happening here that makes the extra effort well worth it. POTW for me

  11. I’m done.
